Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that Pakistan Women cricket team would spend one day as military cadets during their high-performance conditioning camp in Abbottabad later this month. PCB has called 30 women cricketers to participate in a high-performance camp to be held August 16-31 in Abbottabad and they would spend a day at the Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul as a part of this camp.
Chief selector Urooj Mumtaz said, “The players will be spending the day as cadets to experience their daily routine. The idea is to give a different experience to the players and help them understand the benefits of a disciplined life and routine with strenuous training which would help broaden the scope of their thinking. This activity will help them learn and observe a different lifestyle while focusing on traits like determination, resilience and focus,” she added.
Talking on the criteria for choosing 30 players, she said, “We have selected some junior players who can help form the ‘A’ team that will tour Sri Lanka in October.” “We will also focus on the players who are in contention for the national team’s series against the Bangladesh team,” she added.
